player. at the center of the controversy is maryland delegate emmit burns, a democrat from baltimore county. he asked the owner of the baltimore ravens to silence linebacker brendan iandanagio for supporting gay marriage rights in maryland and he support delegate burns an outspoken and we should say a profanity-laced letter saying in part as i suspect you have not read the constitution, i would like to remind you that the very first, the very first amendment in this founding document deals with the freedom of speech. he also said i can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero affect on your life. they won't come into your house and steal your children. you know what having these rights will make gays do? full-fledged american citizens just like everyone else with the freedom to per sue happiness and all that entails. we reached out to delegate burns and he would not give us
a comment. let's expand with the story now. the discussion about the controversy. noah brand is the editor-in- chief of the good men project, an online magazine fostering a discussion around manhood and the question, what does it mean to be a good man? he joining us by skype. good to you have here. >> thanks for having me. >> you bet. >> let's begin with your reaction to the letter to delegate burns, urging the ravens to silence the outspoken player because of his support for same-sex marriage. what is your take? >> i think that is a pretty low thing to do to someone operating a private business for someone in governmental position to tell them to order their employees not to express their opinions. >> he said look, as a football fan, maybe we should keep this separate. do you think perhaps part of theup ease with gay marriage from sports fans is what, maybe a wrestling match over masculine identity?
>> absolutely. our writer liam day published an article, as a matter of fact, today, in which she argues that we imagine masculinity and homosexuality to be opposed to each other, to be somehow enemies. i think delegate burns saw a football player, a macho person speaking in favor of gay marriage and felt as opposed to gay rights, he was entitled to this football player's support. he's a masculine guy and he must be on my side of the homosexuality issue. >> and as know, not the first nfl player to come out and support same-sex marriage. >> certainly. and it's something that people so as contradictory. if yew a big tough guy, you must have a problem with hono sexuals. obviously, that is not the case. mr -- benahos case or other
professional athletes and guys in other occupations in our country and history. >> let's talk about the letter y. do you think that letter, in particular, touched a nerve making it go viral? >> first, obviously, because it's funny. it's easier to forward something to all of your facebook friends that makes you laugh. and because it expresses a genuine and uncompromising anger that i think a lot of people feel over what is fundamentally a civil rights issue when the basic minity of all americans is still upped debate in 2012. a lot of people are fired of -- tired of pussy-footing around that issue and want to just, frankly, speak out and say this is bigotry, this is wrong, and i'm ticked off about it. i think that andrew is what the letter tapped into and that is why it's popular. the fact that he uses profanity
exceptionally well. >> certainly, it's a controversial issue, and i know, like yourself, a lot of people see this as a civil rights, a human rights issue, but not everyone does and that include says delegate burns. again, we have reached out and we're waiting for the response. again, noahh brand, thank you for waving in. >> my pleasure. thank you. the nationals eighth pitcher straussburg has been the talk of baseball with his impending shutdown. the team decided to alter its plan and dave ross has the details. hey, dave. >> reporter: the surprise is not necessarily that steven straussburg is shut down, but rather that it happened earlier than everyone expected. straussburg was supposed to make a final start this wednesday in new york but that start, like the rest of his season s new history. so last night became the swan song for his 2012 campaign, and it was one he would l forget. matching his shortest outing of the season, going three innings, allowing six hits, five earned runs against the marlins.
